    ★★

    Miss Americana aims to celebrate Taylor for being resolute enough to endure all the sexist bullshit she has. And it does, but not without exhausting us with the very things that made her such a difficult figure to begin with.

    Taylor Swift - as seen in the film - is doubtlessly a charming, funny, charismatic individual. She's smart and a great songwriter - that goes without saying. But, there is a lack of self-awareness that permeates around her, particularly when…

    This is a horror movie. Yes, it is beautiful and life-affirming, like many great horror movies before it, but to get to that point you have to endure absolute terror. No movie in recent memory made me more aware of my body and all its shortcomings. I was all-too conscious of how uncomfortably it sat, upright in those needlessly erect cinema seats, fidgeting restlessly as if ants were again crawling around inside me. My fresh lockdown belly wiggling each time…

    ★★★½

    Certainly the best Marvel movie of 2015
